On Monday, December 14th, State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg joined Interim Superintendent Dr. Marco C. Rodrigues, to announce a new program called $eedMA. The initiative will provide each Worcester Public School student in next year’s kindergarten class a $50 deposit for a college savings account.
$eedMA, which is being piloted in Worcester, will also provide financial education to help students and their parents better understand basics like budgeting and saving money, banking, and planning for retirement.
